, not a fluke. let me tell you, president obama won bigger than bush was re-elected in 2004. >> that's right. >> they keep talking about a close election. in 2012, this year, president obama received 50.9% of the vote. mr. bush only received 50.7. so president obama was re-elected by a wider margin than george bush was. some fluke. but then you have strategist stewart stevens even defending romney's claim that president obama used gifts to win the election. listen to this, karen. >> i don't think that's what he was saying. i think he was saying that there's an effort that the incumbent used, as many other incumbents have used, to reach out to constituents. that's something that we've seen in politics going back to a long time. they did it effectively and they have certain groups that they wanted to do well with and they did well. >> that's utterly nonsense. that's intelligence of the public. he was not talking about the traditional way. he was saying, as they said throughout the campaign, he was giving things away, handouts, which was an insult to the president and to those constituent group

they all seem to have reached a crescendo once president obama was elected. so i don't see how people could think there's not a racial component. and it's unfortunate, though, when you point that out, they want to push back and say you're using the race card, but the reality is that the attacks on this president are unprecedented. the reality is, also, that he's needed security and had more secret service threats against him based on race than anybody else in the history of the presidency. and those are real issues and louie gohmert is playing into it and that's also what makes this so irresponsible. >> you think their hatred for the president plays out in the legislative processes as well? i know it does. i mean, i believe it does. they, 368 filibusters. i mean, they don't want anything to do through from his agenda. they come up with the wildest conspiracy theories that we've ever heard. now, of course, the bombing of libya. i mean, it's pretty outrageous. how -- do you think in some certain ways that this is a motivating factor for the progressive base? >> i do. i think it definitely mot

do you think about the translation of the kind of technology the obama campaign built up for this re-election campaign? there has been a lot written about how robust and data-driven and sort of unprecedented their voter contact machine was for this re-election. what do you think about the employability of that towards policy? it is not like they are using more than a database. the system they built to come up with whose door to knock on to come up with the election. it is not like they are using that exact system. they have proven capable of developing something in terms of human contact and technology that nobody else has done before. do you think that cob a game-changer? >> i think they are trying to figure out whether they can make it a game-changer. they have this incredible machine they have built, a machine like no political machine that has ever been built before. it is an amazing thing but we know it's very good at getting people out of their houses to the polls on election day. it is very good at that. is it -- how does it affect policy? can you organize -- the way you organize a pre
